Fertility Treatment For Men
-    Laparoscopic varicocelectomy Varicoceles are believed to play a possible role in infertility in approximately 35% of men with the primary cause of infertility. Laparoscopic varicocelectomy involving several small incisions in the abdomen helps allow the introduction of equipment to visualize the blood vessels causing the varicocele and perform the varicocelectomy
-   Vasal reversal Vasectomy reversal is the surgical measure that rejoins the male reproductive tract after disruption by the vasectomy.
-    Vasovasostomy & Vasoepididymostomy Are surgical interventions developed to circumvent an obstruction in the male genital tract. These measures are commonly performed to reinstate the process of fertility, although they are seldom performed to alleviate pain correlated to postvasectomy
-   Trans-Urethral Resection of Ejaculatory duct Transurethral resection of the ejaculatory ducts is performed in infertile men with indicative ejaculatory duct obstruction. This is performed through a telescopic contrivance positioned through the urethra called a resectoscope.
-   Cone biopsy

It is generally used in the stimulation of the growth of ovarian follicles to reverse anovulation or oligo ovulation, but can also be used to trigger oocyte release from relatively mature ovarian follicles.
-    In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) In vitro fertilization or IVF, is the main, widespread and efficient type of assisted reproductive technology involving the fertilization of the egg external to the body followed by implantation in the woman’s uterus
-    Intra-cytoplasmic Injection (ICSI) Intracytoplasmic sperm injection is a micromanipulation procedure used in the method of in vitro fertilisation (IVF). It involves injecting a solitary sperm into the centre of a mature oocyte. This route bypasses an integer of events in the fertilization process, thereby directly fertilizing the egg. This procedure is used to treat male factor infertility interrelated to the quality and quantity of sperm.
